We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to the training and use of domestic cats in emergency avalanche rescue procedures.
We feel that with proper training, cats can be just as effective – and in some cases, more effective – than dogs, and certainly more effective than traditional probe line techniques.
The group offers training videos and has a documentary about the project for sale. Publications that cast doubt on the seriousness of the project are labeled as canine propaganda. Link -via Metafilter
